Driving in cold weather? Skip the "warm up." As Ecomodder.com points out, an idling engine gets "zero miles per gallon." (And it's environmentally uncool.) Also recheck your tire inflation as the season cools; air temperature affects tire inflation and you may need a "fill up."

GE adds a cool new feature to its refrigerator water filters: recycling

June 14th, 2011

General Electric has unveiled a program that – finally – makes it relatively simple to recycle your refrigerator water filter.
This is news we’ve been waiting for since we went to Lowe’s a couple years ago and tried to recycle our filter canister only to have the appliance department salesman give us a withering look while pointing, pointedly, at the garbage can.

Not that this was Lowe’s fault, or the sales guy’s. There was simply no mechanism in place back then to recycle or reuse water filters. The solution, as it has been with so many American products, was to trash it. And it was painful to watch all that hard plastic head to the landfill; even worse, the charcoal filter inside which was (if it had worked correctly) teeming with microorganisms and chemicals that had been filtered out of the tap water.
